the person is. there is no positive i.d. we expect more details at a briefing from law enforcement in an hour and will bring that live. we've learned the identity of the third victim killed in the attack, lindsay liu. the school confirmed her identity earlier this afternoon. 8-year-old martin richard and 29-year-old krystle campbell were also killed in the horrible bombings. 178 people were injured and at least 100 have been released from area hospitals. i'm joined by john king and cnn analyst. juliet, start with you. you are a former homeland security official. what are you hearing on the latest of the developments especially when it comes to this individual who was spotted on videotape? >> essentially what you said, you know, that the idea they would have a name that soon seemed way too quick for someone in custody unless he was well known to law enforcement already or was under surveillance. right now this is exactly how you would expect an investigation to unfold. there will now be -- trying to figure out what his name is but, jake, the key is what are they going to say at 5:00? we should
to the hospital. that is straight off cbs. we ask average american to assist law enforcement in identifying who the bomber was. see something, say some. now we have someone who was being deported due to national security concerns, who was at the scene, he can possibly i.d. everybody, we're asking that in boston, and we had this g there, and he was detailed in the hospital, covered with blood, and that we will deport him. ofif i might, i am unaware anyone who is being deported for national security concerns at all related to boston. i do not know where -- eli >> he is being deported. >> like i said, i do not even think he was technically a person of interest or a suspect. that was a wash, and i am not aware of any proceeding there. i will clarify that, but i think this is an example of why it is so impnt leaw endo its j >> that is why i say we wouldn't you agree that it is negligent for as the administration to deport someone who was at the scene of the bombing, and we are on to deport him, not being able to question him any more? >> i am not going to answer that question. it is so full of the s
a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is. we're certainly digging on that at this point. you can see in the lower corner of the screen, we're waiting the white house screening. it was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. it's not that unusual for it to run a little later than what it is now. so we do know of course the white house press secretary jay carney will be receiving a lot of questions about these developments. but at this point it's also very much an issue, wo
. there are many, many unanswered questions tonight, including unconfirmed reports on devices found. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unsploided bombs. the official confirmation is that there were two devices. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages and done away with by law enforce. . no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in a young man who is an eyewitness. he was eating with co-workers when he heard the first explosion. so you're about 100 yards away. what did you hear? >> bewere inside the restaurant. heard the first explosion. kind of shook the building a little bit. we kind of wondered what it was. looked outside and saw some smoke. actually ran outside. then the second one blew up about 100 yards from us. >> did they sound like they were about the same size? >> the first one sounded small, because i
with our government's top national security priority, which is the lawful effective and humane interrogation of this subject for the purposes of gathering intelligence. the boston attacks were clearly inspired by the violent ideology of transnationallist islamist terrorism. so we need to learn everything we can about what foreign terrorists or terrorist groups the suspect and his brother might have associated with, whether they were part of additional plots to attack our nation, and what other relevant information the suspect may possess that could prevent future attacks against the united states or our interests. i think we need to delve further into this whole issue of the education that some people who are motivated by these base ideologies obtain over the internet and the effect that it's having. we should at least know about that. our civilian justice system offers a responsible option for striking this balance with american citizens. it allows the justice department to delay reading a suspect his miranda rights if doing so is in the interest of -- quote -- "public safety.
constitution all laws he united states of american against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required when i recited this pledge last week, i cannot imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon. but now, all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform and indeed, we are all move by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran toward the victims, despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered shelter for stranded runners, i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us, all the civilian work of national and international interest, no one has to take a a formal oath. we know instinctively that we stise to the od act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us erans. one nation under god, a
more questions than answers ton. joining me now to explain what is next for law enforcement officials, former l.a. pd detective mark furman is with us. mark, we don't know who or why, but when i heard there were two debt nations after we had the one, and one and then another one 14 seconds later, then the police found two other explosive devices and maybe as many as five others, as the wall street journal says. we haven't confirmed that yet. this seems to fit a pattern of a group. where does your mind go as a detective? >> first, it's terrorism regardless if it's domestic terrorism with a middle east ideology or connection even in spirit and not physically. you know, you look at in, sean, luckily we have electronic surveillance. >> visual equipment almost this everybody's hand. that will be a huge tool in this investigation. the bombs are going to be a huge tool. but they make bombs a certain way in the middle east and they teach their bomb makers to make them in a certain way and these are certainly anti-personnel bombs. they are not intended for vehicles or buildings. these are anti
explosive devices. found on or near the scene of the bombings today. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unexploded bombs for lack of a less specific but more politic term. as of tonight the official confirmation is that there were two devices. only two. those were the two that caused the massive explosions. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages, as potential bombs and done away with by law enforcement in the sometimes explosive way they do that. there are no suspects as of this evening. no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in now a young man today who is an eyewitness to what happened today. jared walker. he was eating with co-workers from ibm at a restaurant a football field's length of way when he heard the first explosion. thanks for being here. you're 100 yards away. what was it like watching? >>
to be watching these guys. maybe we need to change the laws so we can watch them. on the other side lawmakers say this is a free country. you can't just watch somebody because they are strong believers. how deep is the divide? >> we are going to see weeks and months of debate about this. same kind of othing we saw after the failed underwear bombing plot and the times square bombing plot, questions about holding the suspects as enemy combattants. if there is any evidence that the fbi or intelligence services made a mistake expect republicans to seize on that and use it as an opportunity to accuse the president of being too politicly correct in challenging what they think is a war against radical islam. >> i want to bring in a republican from pennsylvania and a member of the homeland security committee. good morning. >> nice to be with you. >> as you go into the briefing what are your concerns and questions in. >> we want to try to know what happened as every other american does with a little more detail. i think you identified the questions that are out there. from the front end, what is it that i
that law enforcement are focused on, areas where large crowds are expected to gather, not just sporting events, but shopping malls and transit hubs. we're seeing the same thing in airports, like los angeles international airport. travelers can expect do see bomb-sniffing dogs, increased police, extra security going through the airport, not just at lax, but airports all around the region. police are also reaching out on social media, twitter and facebook, asking the public this evening to be especially vigilant. again, we want to emphasize there has been no incredible threat in southern california, but the message from law enforcement all around california tonight, to the public, is to watch out, to be alert, and to report anything that seemed out of the ordinary. >> all right, see something, say something, taking on a whole new heightened meaning. thanks so much. >>> now we want to go to our abc producer kendall heap, because she was there, near the finish line in boston at the moment the bombs went off. kendall, i want to bring you in once again, describe to us once more exactly what y
times writing about what he called immigration fear. country and stronger role of law, passed copperheads of reform. -- past comprehensive reform. then there is this summary from the new york times editorial. there is a better way to be safer. pass an immigration bill if terrorists, drug traffickers, and gang bangers with sharp meters in the immigrant haystack, then shrink the haystack. get 11 million people on the books, find out who they are. the issueur calls on of boy scouts of america we welcome jim to the conversation from oklahoma. good morning. the gay crowd wants to push how they live on uni. they should be able to decide their own rules and the government should be completely out of it. just like the gay marriage thing. if they want to get married, fine. if a certain church doesn't want to marry them, then so be it. the government should stay out of the whole issue. that's it. host: part of the debate this week on what to do with the alleged bomber involved in the killing of three bostonians over this past week. the headline, republicans want the boston bombing suspe
are rampant at all of this times. i actually always find it best to just let the law enforcement officials do their job first. they did not need have rumors or innuendoes thrown around by public officials like me. that does not help the situation. host: what are you doing today? what will guest: your agenda my dad will be tried to stay on top of this as best as possible so they can pass information to others. today's the second most important day for those law enforcement people to do their investigation. they have to get this done as quickly as possible as evidence is available. god forbid if anyone is responsible and thinking about doing this again, before they strike again. host: is that a possibility? guest: you never know. those of the kind of things i like to stay away from. something you can do something like this is certainly an evil and crazy person. you never know what is on the mind of people. they almost always turn out to be, by any normal in definition of the term, insane. you cannot understand what would drive someone to kill innocent people. violence is a part of life, people
for his wife and daughter to cross the finish line. >>> as we promised right now, law enforcement is holding a news conference right now. first, the governor of massachusetts. >> the recovery, and any of us are available to take questions from any of you. so let me start with special agent here. >> good afternoon, my name is rick delauris. yesterday at this time the effort was on saving lives and treating the injured. as soon as important tasks were completed, first responders focused on establishing the criminal investigation. the joint task force composed of more than 30 state and local and federal agencies, including the boston state police, the massachusetts state police, atf, and others responded to the scene. many of them were already there as part of the general security for the marathon already in place. the first step law enforcement took was to secure the physical area around the blast for the purpose of preserving the evidence in the area related to the devices itself. this morning, the fbi, along with boston pd, massachusetts state police and atf officially began the f
of an of of the military is doing something that is violative of the law, on the military side as opposed to the civilian side. >> okay. i want to also make you, bring you back to homeland committee oversight subcommittee that held an investigatory hearing last year that concluded that the fbi's failure, refusal to tell the army about hasan's al qaeda connection led to the fort hood terror attacks. in the audience today, i just want to recognize our sergeant shawn mullins who still has two of hasan's bullets in his body, and sergeant alonzo who hasan shot six times, as well as one of the widows of major nidal hasan act that day. to twant to apologize on behalf of the government for failing you, and the president said when he met t you would be taken care of. and whether or not we get to the bottom of is this an act of workplace violence or an act of terror, and whether not you are owed your purple heart, just like the people that were killed in the pentagon on 9/11 or not, so that you can be properly treated, is something that i'm going to commit myself to pick and another for chairman will as well which
surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
this that this defense of the second amendment, which i can't understand, and i have taught constitutional law for 39 years, and i still don't understand how they are defining the words second amendment. >> stephanie: yeah, any other country you go against what 90% of the people want you have a cue. >> caller: i am one of the angry ones. >> stephanie: yeah. it's beyond disappointed -- >> disappointed! >> stephanie: yeah, and even the president said what else can you do except show up at the ballot box at this point. it's just stunning -- >> and i think this should be the end of the 50-state strategy, because he need real democrats. >> obama: the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. >> stephanie: that's what got me the most. despite emotional pleas from the families of victims of the shootings in newtown, and brood public support, the bill failed 54-46. visibly -- a visibly angry obama that was -- he talked about -- we already played that clip. it being a shameful day for washington. he said sooner or later we're going to get it right, the memories of these child

law of war or whether he should be turned over to the civilian criminal justice system immediately. should the ballston bomber be designated as an enemy combatants? give us a call. -- the boston bomber. a very good monday morning to you. we want to take you to the statement that was released over the weekend by three senators and one republican congressman. senator john mccain, senator instagram, senator kelly ayotte, and congressman king. they say the man should be treated as an enemy combatants. so we will take you through that debate that took place on a lot of the sunday shows today and which is on the front page of several newspapers today. here is the front page of the washington times. they're right that this issue is more politically contentious. ma auehe sunday mohows that the white house could lose the honorable intelligence if it mishandles the suspect poses questioning. the debate over the suspect plutayed o on the sunday morning shows. here's another story in the washington post about the status of the case. we will start with lindsey graham, the republican senator fro
for that video to be submitted to law-enforcement. that was a very effective member -- and effective method. morning's "wall street journal," -- you say no? guest: the identification was fairly quick and effective. there were numerous sources online. enforcement tow quickly anidentify the suspects. -- butoston best investigators you did -- boston investigators used a video from various sources. in the fourth amendment it hinges on the idea you have kept reasonable expectation of privacy. do you have a reasonable expectation of privacy when you are walking on a public street? a tricky question. oftentimes it comes down to this question. you do not have an expectation of privacy in a public street. but you also did not have the expectation that everything you say and do is going to be recorded, that that recording is going to be retained indefinitely, perhaps catalogued in a database in the federal government. he did not have the expectation that every one of your conference stations are going to be recorded in kept forever. this is a tricky and thorny question that comes up with the surveill
on boston bombing coming up this hour. when we return we're going to get into the law of this case. dzhokhar tsarnaev was formally charged today. he'll be prosecuted through the criminal justice system despite republicans who say he should be treated as an enemy combatant. >>> later, the russian connection. we have new details about the older brother, tamerlan, and his six-month trip overseas to russia, that area, as he became increasingly more devout in his religion and radicalism. >>> here in washington, the marathon bombings have already started to change the debate on things like -- you knew this was coming -- immigration. >>> finally, life started to return to normal this weekend in boston. i was up there as the slow healing begins. this is "hardball." as we say up there, "hardball." the place for politics. >>> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was of course, white house spokesman jay carney short by before 1:00 p.m. today making clear the boston suspect will not be t
about the zoning laws in texas? >> stephanie: lack of government regulation! they had like a zillion times more -- than you're allowed to have and how many feet from a school! >> a school and a nursing home! that shouldn't happen! >> stephanie: i can't remember the number. i'll get to it. hello! that's rand paul's libertarian pair dice. fertilizer plant with however many tons you want. >> near an active fault zone. >> stephanie: hmm? anyway so obviously lots of breaking news left and right. you were saying the latest i guess is that the -- dzhokhar. i feel like i'm in the cone head sketch. dzhokhar. he is responding to written questions. he's not talking yet. >> he has a wound in their neck. they're not sure if it was self-inflicted. a tube down his neck but he can write. so he is answering questions. >> stephanie: so no word about what we're finding out or not so far. but anyway, so far from dzhokhar. sorry. i'm a little punchy from last week. >> that was a help of a news newsweek. >> like the onion said, cheese us this week. >> stephanie: really? what else now. speaking of what els
to the bombing in boston. meanwhile, law enforcement officials in massachusetts are combing through more than 2,000 tips, looking through photos like this one, shall shows a bag sitting by a mailbox before the explosion. it is unclear at this point whether or not the bag has any relevance, but appears to be near the center of the explosion. president obama will be in boston tomorrow to attend a memorial service for the victims. for the loved once of those killed and maimed in the explosion, there is only confusion and many unanswered questions. joining me today here in new york city, nbc news capitol hill correspondent luke russert, and misterrorism expert michael leiter, and bob herbert, a distinguished senior fellow at dimos. >>> let's go to kristin welker for more. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. here's what we know at this hour. this letter was received yesterday at an off-site mail facility. i want to emphasize that. it did not get close to the white house. it's typical for letters sent to this facility to undergo a screening. during that process, it was discovered that a letter address
. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this whole ordeal started monday with the bombing attack at the finish line of the boston marathon. three people were killed, more than 170 injured. the suspect's older brother died early friday morning following a shootout with police. the two men are also suspected of killing an m.i.t. police officer, 26-year-old sean collier, who was sitting in his patrol car. now, police hope that the surviving suspect will be able to give them some critical information about a possible motive and whether any more people were involved. nbc's katy tur has been
the dead and possibly one law enforcement officer is missing. and our affiliate in houston kprc is reporting that the mobile morgue has been dispatched to west. that's an indication they intend find more bodies in the rubble. >> i know this is being treated as a crime scene. is that just out of an assumption of taking precaution here that it could be or do they know something? >> reporter: it's the world we live in, chuck. they are going to try to rule out the crime right away and focus on what they really believe it is and that's an industrial accident. and it's an industrial accident that sadly has been a part of texas history. back in 1947, in texas city, texas, two ships loaded with ammonia nitrate, same product here exploded killing thousands of people. it's the worst industrial accident in all of the united states. >> what about the first responders in west, texas? did they have the ability to deal with a disaster like this? experience and training? there have been some questions about that this morning. >> reporter: they have what they call mutual aid here. when the fire
penalty, is that what you're saying? >> reporter: sure. because then he's got cooperating with law enforcement, but he's also lost his leverage by saying this. it is in his interest to be able to tell them something. >> you think a lawyer, michael, would have told him to hold out until he got a deal? >> reporter: absolutely. absolutely. the one thing a lawyer is going to try to do at this point is to save his life. the one way to do that is show cooperation by pointing the finger at somebody else or helping them find somebody else. look, i don't take these statements at face value, just, you know, just to be clear. you know, he could well be protecting somebody. clearly there were others who they were talking to. it's hard to imagine the two of them just simply became radicalized by themselves without any encouragement from anybody else. >> that surprises me, too. >> reporter: seems there was an accomplice in the plot. and also, we have the statements from the uncle who says there was somebody who radicalized the older brother. >> so let me thank you very much. >> reporter: that's
? this will profoundly change the way we live our lives. this, obviously happens to human beings. the law is, in public there is no expectation of privacy. what we are looking at right now, the microphones and cameras are legal. the police would have to go to a judge with probable cause. what crime have i committed? probable cause of crime. that is still the law of the land. the question is, will the courts and police respect the law of the land or will they be so terrified of terrorists that they will disobey the law of the land and then they, will be taking away our freedoms. dagen: we have given so much of of our freedom. basically, should the government have the right to look into that information? should we give the government greater leeway because the world has changed that way? >> i do not think we should. would it be easier if the police could break down any door they wanted and arrest whoever they wanted? who would want to live in such a society. in east germany it was a crime to fail to report another crime. if your observation of a crime was on tape, not only would the crime be prosecuted,
. >> law enforcement says while this appears to be targeted, and it is too early to know who did this and how they pulled it off or why. the president was informed moments following the explosions and soon after he addressed the nation. >> any responsible individuals or groups will fill the full weight of justice. >> i can tell you there were many runners from the d.c. region here today. about 40-50 of them from the montgomery county road runners. all of them are ok tonight. one of them is right here. he is from rockville. you were saying earlier this is .he super bowl of running >> it really is. this is a big event for a lot of people that have spent their lives trying to qualify. many people train all year. it is catastrophic and hard to fathom what families are going through. >> glad you are all ok. dan said he was a block and a half when the bomb went off. group use with with r.o.k. but some did hear the bombs room where they exploded. tom ramsey, abc 7 news. >> there are many first-person accounts of what happened today. an arlington man was one of those people who had a fro
. that is the explosions at the boston marathon. fbi and other members of law enforcement now searching for clues to figure out who is behind monday's deadly bombing. >> three people so far have died. one of them is an eight-year-old boy. will the 140 people injured. we begin coverage with brianne carter live in a satellite center. >> good morning. just getting reports from a tv station in boston that law enforcement officers are searching an apartment in the boston suburb of revere, massachusetts. state police say a search warrant related to the investigation has been served. abc news has officials tracking several persons of interest trying to find out who is behind the blast. tragedy at an american twoition after not one but bombings at the official line. the explosions killed at least three people including an eight- year-old boy. more than 100 are injured. >> i saw quite a few casualties. i saw one guy with his legs gone at the knee. feet missing and shrapnel wounds and people in the sides of the head. not good. >> an arlington resident captured video on camera while sitting in the stands waiting for
found two unexploded bombs. this morning a senior law enforcement official says there were no unexploded devices, just the two that went off. several officials say the bombs that went off included shrapnels to multiply the injuries, bebes and ball bearings. investigators are investigating video to see if they can see individuals placing the packages. there is a video from the back carrying two backpacks but it's too soon to know whether that had anything to do with the attack. authorities say there is no suspect in custody but they did talk last night to a 20-year-old saudi man here on a currently active student visa. he had burns and questioned for hours and it's his home that was searched in the boston suburb of revere. they carried away some materials for examination but one official said it's too certain to know one or the other about him, that he might have been an innocent bystander. >> let's get to michael lighter, nbc news terrorism expert. good morning to you. the key question everyone is waking up with is what is your gut? does this bear the hallmarks of some domestic terrorism
the decision and, of course, i'm not second-guessing anybody. i did talk to a law enforcement officer over the weekend who, first of all, said, you know, it would have been much better for us all if this had been plotted out of a cave in afghanistan instead of, you know, an apartment in cambridge. >> one among us. >> yeah, one among us. but also he was saying not so sure about them shutting down the entire city and the message that that sends. you talk about copycats. the copycat said if i do something particularly heinous, i can hold an entire city hostage. >> one of the purposes of terrorists is to disrupt and forcing a city shut down and the rest, she used that end in addition to killing and injurying that you do. one of the reasons -- i don't want to second-guess the tactical decision to lock down boston. but i don't think this is something that if you will a scaleable or sustainable. >> no, we can't do this. >> imagine these guys hadn't been captured and all that. >> after what happened to the boston marathon in an internationally visible way. we were covering this all morning long. i
why. >> here at home and in major ina cities across the nation, law enforcement officials taking no chances as they tie 1 tie ten security. how the district is taking a look at the event. >>> and flags at half-staff infn honor of the victims. fox 5 news continuing right now. >>> good morning, straight up at 6:00 on this tuesday morning, it's april 16th, a live look lok outside right now at theat the washington monument. you cawan see the skies areare starting to lighten up a littlet bit there. >> good morning, i'm sarah simmons. >> i'm wisdom martin.martin. >>> we have a lot to talk aboutt this, we will start with tucker barnes. drizzle in a few few spots. it's going to be a decent day. we have temperatures in the loww 70s, warmer than yesterday with i'm not going to say a lott of sunshine, but at least a buts little bit of sunshine suns particularly in the second half of the day.he things will improve, 56 at washington. that's the winning number. most of the area in the low to mid-50s. mid-50 relatively mild start to the morning. ite-radar, you can see the can gray there, that's
but the quick law enforcement response underscored their effort to stop track and stop the people responsible. >> i encourage everyone to have a heightened state of vigilance here in the boston area.
